Madewell Harlow Pants Review: Petite, Standard, Curvy

Since Madewell released the Harlow Pant in 2022, the trousers have become one of the retailer’s most popular items (and a TikTok favorite!). Not only does the high-waisted, wide-leg, pleated style come in several fabrics (cotton, linen, denim, etc.), but it’s also available in a myriad of colors (black, pink, brown, green, etc.) and different sizing ranges (petite, regular, tall, plus, etc.).

Here at Refinery29, we’ve had our eye on the customer favorite for a while. But it wasn’t until November when Madewell dropped the Harlow in a new satin fabrication, which comes in black and brown colorways, that we decided to test the trousers firsthand. In December, we wanted to see if satin, a staple of holiday dressing and eveningwear, could translate into a daytime must-have.

In the new year, we put the style to the test yet again after the brand released the fan favorite in a new Curvy fit. We, of course, had to compare the original to the hourglass-figure-friendly fit (available in black, acorn brown, and forest green) to see if the Harlow trousers are as versatile as the reviews claim them to be. Ahead, our thoughts.
